Regardless of where you’re writing this Monday, you can still imagine being somewhere else you’d rather be, even if you can’t physically be there. Keep reading to see today’s full writing prompt and my completed version of it. Hopefully, this gets you motivated to write today and the rest of the week ahead.
Today’s Writing Prompt: A Writer’s Retreat
Before you begin writing today, close your eyes and imagine what your ideal space to write looks like. Then imagine that you’re there writing. Write about what you’re envisioning. Perhaps you’re writing in a large library with stories of books? Perhaps you’re writing in a house on the beach or a cottage in the English countryside? Use your imagination.

Writing At The Lakeside Library, by K.E. Creighton
It’s dawn. The accordion glass doors to the lakeside library are wide open and the crisp fresh air from the lake surrounds me as birds quietly chirp in the background. I’m sitting on the small reading sofa in the library, sipping my freshly ground Columbian coffee, wrapped in a velvety ivory-colored blanket. My laptop is sitting on my lap desk next to me on the sofa, not yet open because I’m watching the sun rise over the lake in between two large oak trees outside. Once the sun is smaller and rounder and hovering above the lake, it’ll be time to start writing. And I’ll write for a few hours. I’ll begin my writing after the day officially begins.

Notes on Completing this Writing Prompt
This writing exercise is powerful, almost meditative, and will motivate you to write whenever you’re stuck. It brought me back to a place I always fantasize about, my lakeside library. Read about it in the post I wrote back in August: My Ideal Personal Library.
